DPT Vaccines Recalled in China

DPT Vaccines Recalled in China

The China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) announced on Nov. 6, 2017 that batches of the Diphtheria, Pertussis and Tetanus (DPT) vaccine from two companies, Changchun Changsheng BioTech and Wuhan Institute of Biological Products, did not meet national standards.1 2

The China News Service reported:

Under the Drug Administration Law, vaccines must be checked for safety and efficacy before they can enter the market. The National Institutes for Food and Drug Control, which carries out premarket checks, tested the DPT vaccines according to normal international practice, and reported no issues, the FDA said. However, the ineffective vaccines were not identified. A later routine check found the vaccines’ “titer”-a measure of the concentration of antibodies-of both companies’ products to be substandard.3

Investigative teams have been assigned to the vaccine plants in China for 6-8 weeks to assess quality of all the vaccines.3

The announcement angered many Chinese parents given their lack of trust in locally manufactured vaccines that have previously led to several vaccine injuries as well as vaccine-related deaths.4 A Chinese mother, Ms. Chou from Shandong Province whose child has been a victim of faulty vaccines in the past, said in an interview:

They said it wouldn’t have any terrible effect, but who knows for sure? It [the Administration] didn’t carry out an investigation, and neither does it know who ended up being vaccinated with these. When it says the vaccines won’t do the body any harm, who knows? There is no way for us to check.4

Chou added, “To the [health department], everything is just a number. But for every single family, it is a catastrophe [when a child becomes a victim].”4

    This is just another example to stay away from vaccines.When I was a kid in 1955 parents of that day had measles parties.Bring your kids to an infected house to give them measles creating lifelong immunity.Today you would be arrested for that.Vaccines only have a 4-5 year immunity that’s why today there are 17 vaccines with 69 booster shots until the age of 18.Anyone with a tinge of common sense and a few days of investigating vaccines WOULD see the harm of ALL vaccines to their children and themselves

      Let’s not forget that ALL vaccines have toxic chemicals that the body doesn’t need!

    Wait, doesn’t that mean, as our gov continues to promote Big Pharma’s vaccine industry injuring more citizens, constituents and other resident Americans, the gov is effectively becoming more LIKE China’s still-red godless untrustworthy lying Communist regime?? The one Bernie Sanders, Hollowood and so many love and represent?
    I guess the most-devastated families are also most unlikely to fight back, given their near decimation. Everyone needs to understand, THAT GOV IS COMING FOR US ALL. SEE “Your” “Rep” on the database of lawful bribes, at http://www.Maplight.org. Did your Senator make $63 Million like mine did?
    While the Executive Branch & Judiciary, put in before The D.J. T-Rump, should be moved to Guantanamo; it IS CONgress that enables them to be paid for it.

    William’s comment is misleading/erroneous. There are 17 DIFFERENT vaccines, SOME of which require more than one dose, and MANY of which work longer than 4 to 5 years. To paraphrase/correct his last sentence, anyone with a tinge of common sense and a few days of investigating vaccines WOULD see the SAFETY of ALL vaccines to their children and themselves. The smallpox vaccine is believed to have eliminated smallpox worldwide, so the vaccine is no longer given (unless you are a lab worker who works with the virus that causes smallpox or other viruses that are similar to it). If there somehow is an outbreak of smallpox, you should get the smallpox vaccine if you are directly exposed to smallpox virus. For example, if you had a prolonged face-to-face contact with someone who has smallpox. (https://www.cdc.gov/smallpox/vaccine-basics/who-gets-vaccination.html) Anti-vaxxers (those who withhold vaccines from children or themselves) are putting others at danger, as well as themselves (or their children) – MUCH more danger than that of any of today’s vaccines could cause. Follow the advice of a pediatrician or infectious disease specialist (M.D.), not friends or relatives or quacks.
